LifePoint Hospitals changes name

Brentwood, Tenn.-based LifePoint Hospitals has changed its name to LifePoint Health to reflect the range of healthcare facilities it owns and operates.

The name change, which takes effect today, coincides with the company's 16th anniversary.

"As the needs of our communities have grown and evolved, so has our company," Chairman and CEO William F. Carpenter III said in a statement. "We began by operating community hospitals and, today, our operations have expanded to include physician practices, post-acute services, outpatient services, and wellness and prevention programs that enhance the health and wellbeing of those we serve. Our new name is a fitting reflection of our strategic direction for the future."

LifePoint Health will continue to be listed on NASDAQ under its current ticker symbol, LPNT.
